AHIP Launches New Long-Term Care Education Campaign

The centerpiece of this campaign is a new consumer-friendly website, http://www.MyLifeMyFamily.com, to provide consumers with basic information about long-term care insurance. The website provides videos that feature real-life stories from current policyholders, an interactive online quiz, and additional resources on long-term care insurance.

AHIP commissioned a series of surveys and focus groups to assess consumers' perceptions of long-term care insurance. Many Americans underestimate their risk, underestimate the cost of long-term care, and many erroneously believe they have long-term care coverage. Moreover, most are not focused on planning for long-term care and are not taking appropriate steps to protect their retirement savings should they need long-term care services.

If we pass HR 676 we won't need this.

i've been trolling reading some of the insurance industry insider blogs, including their talking back and forth with each other on stuff like this. it's depressing.

my Google alert for my adopted parasite (Aetna) has occasionally taken me to insurance agent blogs. A very different and interesting view emerges there.

Policy not party!

... I would love a critique of their propaganda.

And I think it would help others.

i've stumbled over them much like gob did. i've got a bit of a collection of bookmarks to various sites, some of them more insider than others.

Long-term care insurance isn't snake oil, but it's prohibitively expensive insurance for programs that warehouse seniors in the worst circumstances.

I forgot about LTC insurance until they mentioned it.

Boy, did they make a mistake.

The pro-UHC forces should be gathering a huge amount of horror stories; every person knows or will be a senior who needs compassionate care, not only false compassionate rhetoric.

Nursing home reform won't come until we take all the profit motive out of it, and pay the caregivers living wages and health benefits.

And I'm not talking corporate branding, as with logos.

but the problem is the number of unfinished, half-finished, partly-finished, just-barely-started posts i've got piling up on all the topics i've got an opinion on [which would be most of them].

so, i would like to tentatively adopt wellpoint, but will be happy to give it to anyone else who wants it, since i'm likely to be slo-o-o-o-o-ow about posting.
